Hi. I’m the Chief Creative Officer at Lucid, where I lead product design and marketing for BuildingOS and Building Dashboard. I enjoy UI/UX, motion and vector graphics, typography, brand/IP development, writing, and pitching new ideas. I’m a graduate of Oberlin’s Environmental Studies Program, where I had worked as a lab assistant and operator of the Living Machine; a sysadmin and designer of the first experimental data acquisition and display system at the Lewis Center; and a George Jones Farm hand and recycler for Fairchild Co-op. My mentor was Prof. John Petersen, with whom I work today alongside other Oberlinians from our company that had begun at Oberlin in 2004. I live in Oakland, California.
